The distribution of counterfeit medications

October 16 [Thu], 2014, 10:52
A Warwick man has been sentenced to 50 months in federal prison for trafficking more than $1 million in counterfeit nike nfl and Nike apparel, as well as medications and beauty products, discovered during a routine customs check in Anchorage, AK in 2012.

Norman Cipriano, 41, of Warwick, pled guilty on Aug. 5, 2013, to trafficking in counterfeit goods and services. In addition to the more than four-year prison term, U.S. District Court Chief Judge William E. Smith also ordered Cipriano to serve three years of supervised release upon completion of his prison time. The amount of restitution to various companies affected will be determined at a later date, according to a release from United States Attorney Peter F. Neronha.

“The distribution of counterfeit medications, both over-the-counter, as in this case, and prescription narcotics, as in other cases we have seen, present an obvious health and safety threat. Trafficking in other counterfeit goods, such as apparel and other consumer products, may seem more innocuous, but nevertheless demands the same aggressive attention from law enforcement. Such criminal misconduct causes irreparable economic harm to the companies that make the real article, including such companies’ ability to maintain and create jobs for every-day Americans,” Neronha said.

According to a release from Neronha’s office, HSI agents in Rhode Island were notified that Customs and Border Protection (CBP) agents in Anchorage, AK, conducted a routine border search of a package arriving from the People’s Republic of China addressed to Cipriano and his Warwick home. The shipment was manifested as “Man Coats.” An examination of the contents revealed sports jerseys affixed with nfl shirts Football and Nike trademarked logos. CBP agents suspected that the display of trademarks was unauthorized.

CBP agents shipped the package to HSI agents in Rhode Island who conducted a controlled delivery of the merchandise to Cipriano’s residence on Aug. 23, 2012, with the assistance of the HSI Boston Gangs/Commercial Fraud Unit and Warwick Police.

Simultaneously, working with HSI agents from Boston who had already begun an investigation into Cipriano’s alleged import and sale of counterfeit merchandise at a flea market in Raynham, Mass., continued the investigation, which included multiple visits and surveillance of Cipriano’s activities at the flea market and at his home.

I just had bunch of shoes

New Japan Pro Wrestling's current IWGP Heavyweight Champion, AJ Styles, isn't as clear on how he began collecting, but that doesn't mean he's any less devoted. "I really don't know how I started collecting," says Styles. "I think before I knew it, I just had bunch of shoes." His current favorite is the Air Max model, but he loves the brand as a whole. "I think what drives [my devotion] is the fact that, overall, Nike puts out great shoes with great performance. But most importantly ... they look cool."

But what keeps wrestlers sticking with Cheap Nike Air Max through thick and thin? "It's all about branding," says Jarrett. "I actually had a foot doctor, when I had a lower back problem, tell me that Nikes probably weren't the best fit for me. They recommended I wear Reeboks for whatever reason. So for several years, I would wear Reeboks for training, but gradually, over the years, I've gravitated back towards Nike. And for no other reason and no conscious decision of mine, but just because of how well Nike brands. Reebok, adidas, Asics ... they're all basically the same type [of] shoe, but Nike, from the "Just Do It" days, or "Bo Knows," or "Be Like Mike" ... just one campaign after another. Nike, they don't just hit a double, they hit a grand slam nine times out of 10, in terms of branding. And I think that's why I have a collection of Nike Air Max Sale."

Morgan also believes in branding and in the connection between the consumer and the athlete. "Being a Michael Jordan fan, I'm always gonna jump higher and run faster if I'm wearing my Air Jordans."

Though definitely cleaner and more contemporary

Footwear giant Timberland Boots is delivering a dose of nostalgia this month with the debut launch of its Hazel Highway collection.

Inspired by the Super Boot that was introduced in 1979, this throwback range is comprised of six silhouettes that each utilize the same materials and details found in the original shoe design. We’re talking iconic Timberland components, like bright-yellow laces, forrest green accents, lacing hardware, and tough Hazel Highway leather that nods the original Krymp Oxide leather used in 1979.

Though definitely cleaner and more contemporary, this limited-edition collection stays true to the highly durable craftsmanship that was so vital to withstand the harsh climates of Northeast America. To honor the men who wore the Super Boot in such conditions, Timberland Outlet presents a retro-inspired lookbook that documents a road trip down the I-95 Corridor from Boston to Baltimore.

This summer I attended Nike's Peach Jam

"It's not just Nike," Meyer said. "Cheap Nike Air Max is just bigger and better."

If you have a hard time buying what Meyer is selling, simply look at E1T1 and where its players have ended up.

On the team's site, there are 31 players who have signed with Division I schools since 2010, and 28 of them signed with Nike schools. Out of the six players in the 2015 class who have verbally committed, five plan to sign with Nike schools.

Blakeney is one of seven 5-star players, according to's ratings, to go through the E1T1 program. Assuming Ben Simmons does not break his commitment to LSU, the other six all ended up at Nike schools.

No matter the high-profile Nike-sponsored team, these numbers are all going to be similar, and there's a good explanation for it: loyalty.

This summer I attended Nike's Peach Jam, and next to the vending machines on my hotel floor were empty Nike shoe boxes to the ceiling. Nike gives these kids free gear left and right, and it's totally legal.

There was a guy who floated around at Peach Jam, schmoozing with the players and coaches. He worked for Nike Air Max Sale. I asked someone, "What's he do?"

We have a society that dearly loves its football

Regardless of the eventual outcome of the criminal case, the charges are a major setback to Peterson and the Vikings.

Long the face of the team, Peterson’s photo is prominently displayed at the construction site for the Vikings’ new $1 billion stadium in downtown Minneapolis. And his case is a reminder that Vikings fans have endured too many off-field criminal charges and embarrassments by team members in recent years.

The Vikings have had more players arrested ― 44 ― since 2000 than any other NFL team.

Cheap Nike Air Max, the multibillion-dollar sporting apparel company that pays Peterson for endorsements, said Saturday it was continuing “to closely monitor the situation.”

For some, including former Gov. Arne Carlson, a vocal critic of state financing for the Vikings stadium, Peterson’s arrest was more evidence that pro sports ― and the money and culture it has created ― are out of control.

“We have a society that dearly loves its football ― almost at any cost ― and therein lies a danger. We’re addicted,” he said. He said the “tipping point” would only come “when you and I as fans, and as supporters, point to ourselves and say we’re part of the problem.”

Peterson is set to make $11.75 million this year and will receive another $2.4 million as part of an overall $12 million signing bonus he got as part of a seven-year, $96 million contract ― $36 million of it guaranteed ― signed in 2011.

The most noticeable take away

September 10 [Wed], 2014, 11:09
These days random streetwear x classic brand collaborations are commonplace but whenever we see Timberland Boots UK do a brand collab we can’t help but be surprised . This time they get in bed with Black Scale and craft a 6″ Premium Boot in three colorways that is sure to make you not miss those runners as much as you thought you would this fall.
The most noticeable take away from the collaborative effort is that each one is given a tiger camo ankle collar and with a red ribbon running up it’s heel. It’s more subtle that you think but really makes a bold statement for anyone who knows their mens timberland boots 6 inch. This addition pops up on all three colorways including black, olive and wheat.
This subtle blend of both brands is set to come sometime soon however no one release date has been set. If you weren’t excited for fall yet hopefully these will change your mind.

Never have we seen a device so existential

August 19 [Tue], 2014, 10:48
If you’ve been staying current with Medgadget, you’ve probably noticed that we like to review fitness trackers. They’re convenient, fairly stylish, and offer a lot of useful information about your daily activity. However, they pretty much all consist of an accelerometer with sophisticated software to process the data. For that reason, we’ve yet to find a fitness wearable deserving of our unequaled praise.

However, we believe we’ve found a winner: Introducing Nike Air Max, a bracelet that was announced this week on America’s most trusted news source, The Onion. +Runlogic takes fitness tracking far beyond step counting with sophisticated algorithms to explain why you’re exercising. For example, say you’re contemplating the meaning of your fleeting existence here on the planet? +Runlogic tracks this. Are you in a loveless marriage? +Runlogic understands this and uses your inner pain to push your fitness to unprecedented levels. Are you taking a late-night run after realizing that you’re lonely and have no friends? +Runlogic detects this and can automatically calculate running routes up and down hills, through desolate forests and vast plains that allow you to come to terms with your angst. We knew Nike +Runlogic was going to be a quantified-self game changer when it could repeatedly detect that we were questioning if the Hokey Pokey really is what it’s all about.

Never have we seen a device so existential, which makes Cheap Nike Air Max a winner in our book. That’s because while other fitness wearables track your daily activities, +Runlogic touches your soul.

Promotional and sample products consist of items usually made for an athlete

August 06 [Wed], 2014, 16:34
Attorneys for Jason Keating, Kyle Yamaguchi, Shu-Chu Yamaguchi, Tung Ho and Denise Yee filed motions on August 1 and 4, saying the suspension would ensure the five defendants' Fifth Amendment rights are protected, court documents say.

Nike air max 90 alleges Ho, 36, of Portland, and Kyle Yamaguchi, 33, of Portland, used their positions as product managers to steal hundreds of pairs of promotional and sample Nike sneakers and sell them. Keating, 35, of Fort Myers, Fla., is accused of being one of their largest buyers and Yee, a former Nike demand planning analyst, and Shu-Chu Yamaguchi, Kyle's 34-year-old wife, are accused of being aware of the plot and aiding in the footwear thefts, according to Nike.

Kyle Yamaguchi worked as a Nike promotional product manager between 2006 and 2012, and then Ho replaced him until the company fired him in March in connection with the alleged sneaker thefts. Yee, 32, of Portland, was also fired from Nike air max uk in March after six years with the company.

Ho, Keating and Kyle Yamaguchi pleaded not guilty to federal charges in the criminal case in July. Prosecutors claim Keating paid Yamaguchi $679,650 for about 630 pairs of shoes and Yamaguchi and Ho allegedly began working together to steal from Nike between September 2012 to March 2014.

Promotional and sample products consist of items usually made for an athlete, team, celebrity or other influential people and in some cases never become retail products. Federal investigators say individual pairs of the rare cheap nike trainers sneakers could be sold for prices ranging from $1,000 to more than $20,000 among shoe collectors.

We are once again underlining our position

July 11 [Fri], 2014, 15:48
With Adidas sponsoring both teams in Sunday's World Cup final, the German sportswear brand has declared victory over U.S. rival Nike Air Max in the latest round of its battle to remain the biggest global football brand.

The two companies dominate a football kit industry worth more than $5 billion (2.92 billion pounds) a year, sharing more than 80 percent of the market for many products, but Nike has been threatening Adidas' leadership, including in its home territory of western Europe.

While Adidas has supplied the match ball for the World Cup since 1970, Nike Air Max UK kitted out more teams at the competition in Brazil for the first time, 10 out of the 32 teams including the hosts, compared with nine for Adidas.

However, the three stripes of Adidas will dominate the pitch on Sunday, on both teams' jerseys for the first time since 1990 and on many of their star players' boots as well as the match officials' clothing and the ball.

"Adidas will be the most visible brand by far in the World Cup final," said Chief Executive Herbert Hainer, who had predicted a Germany-Argentina final well before the two teams beat Nike Air Trainers-backed Brazil and the Netherlands in the semis.

"We are once again underlining our position as the world's leading football brand. Adidas is the clear number one in football globally," Hainer added in a statement.
